Asante Kotoko coach Kjetil Zachariassen is worried over the playing surface of the Sani Abacha Stadium as they get set for CAF Champions League clash against Kano Pillars.
The Porcupine Warriors will face Kano Pillars in the first leg of their Preliminary Round tie on Saturday, August 10 at the Sani Abacha Stadium.
But Zachariassen is worried by the astro-turf 10,000 capacity stadium of Kano Pillars.
”Nigeria we know quite well, but it’s the ground, the AstroTurf they play on, so we will be digging deep into that, what type of field we gonna play, so that will be the main issue so we are preparing for it,” Zachariassen told local radio Oyerepa FM.
The Porcupine Warriors have been preparing rigorously for Africa’s elite club competition, after signing as many as eight players including Ugandan forward George Abege.
The Reds were involved in an international friendly on Sunday against Burkinabe side Rahimo FC which they won 2-1.
Kotoko will host Kano Pillars in the return leg two weeks later in Kumasi.
